About Us

St James is a community of people who love God and want to grow in faith, grow in community, and find ways to love and serve others. We meet at St James Church in Whanganui East but come from all over Whanganui. Our church has people of all ages – senior people who have faithfully attended for many years, people whose children have recently flown the coup, and families with children and teenagers. Our children’s and youth ministries are an important part of our life as a church. We love finding creative ways to learn, grow and serve our community together. Our Sunday worship services are faithful to The Word, intergenerational and engaging. St James are a welcoming bunch who love God, love sharing food together, making space for creativity, and finding ways to love and serve their community.
